Littlewood - Facilities

This large and spacious detached house is right in the middle of Cornwall and only 7 miles from each coast. It is the perfect spot for families to reunite and enjoy this stunning county. The village sits only two minutes from the A30, making it a great touring base - you really can go anywhere from here very easily. This house is brimming with history, not only because of its name ‘Littlewood’, so named as it was built by the very first winners of the Littlewoods football pools. During the 60s and 70s, the house was a secret retreat for celebrities and pop and rock stars to hide away from the glare of the media, and to get together, play some music and party. The house has had many guests including Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart, Elton John, Marsha Hunt and The Small Faces. St Columb Road, with its branch line station sits on the Newquay to Par train line, meaning you can stroll down the road and catch a train to Newquay on the north coast or to Par on the south coast, where you can connect with the mainline train and tour Cornwall without the need to drive.
Newquay Airport is a mere 3 miles away with links to the Scilly Isles, London Gatwick and many more UK airports, which means that you could fly down making your stay a car-free trip. Newquay, with its 11 beaches and vibrant surf culture including many excellent schools and hire shops, is a great place to unwind on the sandy beaches, walk along the dramatic coast path or simply relax in a beachside bar or restaurant. The town has a zoo and working harbour where you can take a sea fishing trip to catch supper for the barbecue back at the house.
Padstow, home to Rick Stein’s foodie empire including a cookery school and seafood restaurant, is a must. The town, with its narrow cobbled streets that gravitate towards the pretty working harbour, is a delight, a jewel on this stunning coast. Walk the streets, enjoy a pint or enjoy a pasty, try a cream tea (jam first) or hire bikes at one of the many cycle hire shops. Cycle on the Camel Trail, a flat multi-use trail that clings to the shoreline of the Camel River as it flows inland towards the market town of Wadebridge, and eventually Bodmin and Bodmin Moor. You could also cycle through the village and up onto Goss Moor, following the heritage cycle route. After taking in the ancient moors and clay works, why not stop off and enjoy a treat on your return at the village’s acclaimed fish and chip shop?
The south coast, 7 miles, with its more forgiving temperate climate, is easily reached, and a whole new world opens up in Charlestown, a World Heritage Site and home to sailing ships. The town is regularly used as a television and film set, most recently for Poldark and Taboo and many Hollywood films. The village is full of great local pubs, art shops and galleries, and has its own spectacular beach and harbour.
Truro, Fowey, Mevagissey, St Austell and The Roseland Peninsula are all easily reached too and all worth a day out. St Ives, Lostwithiel, Falmouth and Penzance are all easily reached either by car or by train, making Littlewood the perfect spot to enjoy this amazing county. Horse riding, surfing, golf, cycling, a spa, shopping and go-karting are all available nearby. Beach 6 miles. Shop 100 yards, pub 1½miles and restaurant ½ mile.

  • Kieran - Bristol 8th January 2020

    Our stay January, 2020

    Our stay at littlewoods for new year 2019 was lovely. However, we had a very hostile welcoming from the owner, she only wanted to talk to the person who booked this when there was 12 of us in total. From the moment we arrived it was a list of want we can and cannot do. We would not recommend this place unless changes are made. Below is a list of positives and negatives about the place and the owner. Positives ; The house was lovely to stay in and very spacious. The owner prior to arrival was in good communication with the person who booked it. She made two phone calls prior to arrival to check all things were OK. Close location to Newquay and Truro. Snooker table was in good condition and provided lots of fun. Jacuzzi was also lovely to use, very warm but could only get 5 people in it at a time ( obviously we are not expecting 12 people in at once). The bedrooms are a good size minus the small bedroom at the top. Negatives; On arrival the owner commented on our age and asked if we were all this age ( implying that we were young). She also made negatives comments about previous guests. The small room in the kitchen where the freezer was, the owner was adamant all shoes had to be kept in there. The owner only wanted dogs confined to the kitchen throughout the entire stay. However, the online description of the house did not state this when booking. We almost left the house due to the owner agreeing to a refund as she did not want the dogs in the house. However, after a conversation she finally agreed to let the dogs into the house if we kept them clean. Online it stated in the Dining room there was a 48" Freeview Smart TV. This was not the case no TV! Bedroom 3: With twin beds and Freeview TV. This was not the case no TV in the twin room. Limited plug sockets in rooms or in stupid areas I.e under the sinks. Small bedroom upstairs has no PLUGS atall. Not allowed to use the front door as owner did not want us too. No gas central heating upstairs all rooms had small plug in heaters instead, however the bigger rooms were still cold. Small bedroom upstairs has mould all over the back wall and had a strong smell of bleach. When we moved the bed the back wall had bleach drips running down the wall. This was the room a small baby was staying in ( pictures provided). A very Small kitchen that is inadequate for the ratio of 12 guests. The gas oven was poor to use and cooking took twice as long. For example a pizza took over 30 - 40 minutes. The cooking hood where the extraction fan sits is extremely dirty and needs a deep clean. The fridge is extremely small to store food for a weeks duration for 12 people. Upstairs door was locked, owner claimed it is going to be a bathroom which is going to be renovated in the summer. Which was not stated on the online description. Only one proper bathroom in the whole house. An extra toilet downstairs, but as you can imagine between 9 adults and 3 kids not an ideal situation. Parking, stated on the description for four cars. This was extremely tight we had to be bonnet to bumper to squeeze four cars on. Road parking is very limited outside the house due to being on a main road and houses opposite. No festival decor for the time of year that we came. In conclusion, we go away every new year as a family. We had a lovely stay however, we would not return or recommend this place to a big group, unless changes are made.

    Our stay November, 2019

    Great place to stay for a family holiday. House has been nicely renovated. Kitchen is a tad small, but the outside space and other areas more than makes up for it.

    Our stay July, 2019

    Handy location. 6 bedrooms but only one full bathroom; not great with 12 guests. One additional toilet room, and one bedroom with en suite shower (but no toilet). Patio area in the back garden is very nice with hot tub jacuzzi.
